Campus of the University of Vienna

Several thousand people gather at the Campus of the University of Vienna every day to conduct research, teach and study. The Campus was officially opened in 1998 on the grounds of the former General Hospital. It covers an area of 96,000 square metres.

The history of the Campus of the University of Vienna dates back to the 18th century, when Emperor Joseph II had the Viennese Institute for the Poor reconstructed as the General Hospital. With a donation from the city of Vienna to the University of Vienna, the entire area became the property of the university in 1988.

Sixteen Departments of the two Faculties of Philological and Cultural and of Historical and Cultural Studies, the lecture hall center, numerous service facilities for students as well as shops, offices and catering establishments define the campus as a multiuse and multifaceted area. In thirteen green courtyards, students, employees and all Viennese citizens find oases of relaxation, an opportunity for encounters with art and culture, local food and culinary delights.

The Campus of the University of Vienna is located near the University Main Building and the historic center and is easily accessible by public transport.
